Don't Get Me Wrong

Attempt to pressure me
“When will you have a child?”
This question
Always never makes me smile
I want one..
Don't get me wrong
There's more for me in life
I'm finding where I belong

That rejected look
I'm not defective
Taking my time
Have fun playing detective

I've made the mistake
Turned my living room into judge Judy
I've learned, I withdraw
Far from perfect, who am I to decide?
There's so much I never hear, 
Wish I never saw
I don't listen to what people say
I watch what people do
It's true.. actions yell
Like thunder from the clouds
When I do something right, 
I can hear my relative angels proud

Raised with truth that I could make a difference
Here I am trying to live in my grandpas shoes
But going to college, get the degree, work for a CEO
Wrong size for me, don't care how many battles I lose
It's how you do better, raise yourself up
Practice makes perfect
Untying knots, finding pollutions
Traveling life, it's so abrupt. 

There's no shield for life
No knight in shining armor
Rather be the solution 
Skip by Walmart, 
Pay the farmer

When I tuck myself in
I sleep well, I dream
Happiness comes from within
If what I do is so evil, 
Just know I'm content with living in sin.

    I enjoy your words in the silence, when I see no comments I ponder violence, A long journey, you seem to be expecting, I wonder if applications, you are accepting, that temptation could lead to defiance I read your words once, twice thrice, wondering ig I'm of macho men or mice, the chemical romance not a romance at, But I found a glass slipper at the ball, now my search for cinderella leads back to vice A shadow only remains where there's light, your words are sunshine on a dark night
